More than 20 years of stop the violence church meetings, town hall meetings, and grassroots surveys have revealed an overwhelming need to expose criminalization of our CYYA through RBE in music/music videos.  In support of our position, we have included content from websites of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP); an exceptionally enlightening November 2009 article in Pediatrics, American Academy of Pediatrics Council on Communications and Media (we left the content of their article as is, i.e., their hyperlinks to specified footnotes).  To link directly to the article, we have provided the Read more link.

Subsequent to school campus massacres, social concerns and research for crime-filled entertainment

"...33% of those listening to music did so while performing other tasks or activities. These data support the idea that the prevalence of music-listening in adolescents may be even higher than that of television viewing. The reason for this is that popular music is present almost everywhere, from the supermarket to the mall, often as background music..." Read more

media for youth have focused primarily on violent TV, movie, and video games; each being pulsations of light (visual, screen imagery).

While greater concern leans toward violent video games, determined to be school campus murderers preference of media entertainment, studies indicate music-listening to be most prevalent among youth and young adults.

The brain study below researched groups with exposure to violent pulsations of light--TV, movie, and video games.  In the absence of brain study research with groups exposed to pulsations of violent music/music videos, we incorporated the scans below for your visualization of the damage and the explanations, consequential to the impact of the electrical pulsations.

This first set of brain scans shows brain activity during a decision, called Go-No-Go. When it comes to 

looking into the future, weighing consequences and making decisions, the low media violence exposure group is using a lot of the logical part of their brain; the high media violence exposure group is using very little.

Media violence also makes violent brains: violent TV, movie, and video game exposure had an effect on normal kids that made their brain scans

children with violent TV, movie, and video game exposure had reduced cognitive brain function.

This second set of brain scans show that media violence stunts or "retards" kids' brain development:

the same as children with documented diagnosed Aggressive Behavior Disorder.

Insofar as the youth in the study were not exposed to silent video games, silent movies, or silent TV programs, the pulsations of light were accompanied by pulsations of sound.  Can research make a distinction between damage caused by the violent imagery and damage caused by the violent sound contained in the media?  If yes, was that done in this study; and how may the public know the findings?

The scans and information were available on the University of Indiana website, but have been removed.  We found nothing about the study in their archives.  Provided below is contact info for readers desiring to make inquiry:

"... A study of 100 fourth- to sixth-graders revealed that 75% of them watched music videos, with 60% of them self-describing their frequency of viewing videos as either “pretty much” or “a lot.” Of these children, 62% watched music videos either “most days” or “every day,” and 7% watched them even before going to school.30 In 2003, a report of the Kaiser Family Foundation90 revealed that 3 of 4 of those in the 16- to 24-year-old group watch MTV, 58% watch it at least once a week, and 20% watch it for an hour or more every day. More recently, a study revealed that a sample of

12- to 15-year-olds watched

music videos on an average of

4.3 days per week.92

"... On a study performed in 2005 to assess media use of 8- to 18-year-olds in the United States, Roberts et al25 reported that on a given day, 85% of 8- to 18-year-olds listen to music.  Although time devoted to listening to music varies with age group, American youth listen to music from 1.5 to 2.5 hours per day. Still, a study performed with a small sample of at-risk youth revealed an average of up to 6.8 hours of music-listening per day.29. It also is easily available through the radio, various recordings, the Internet, and new technologies,11,25 allowing adolescents to hear it in diverse settings and situations, alone or shared with friends..."

"...Research on music videos has been focused mainly on content analyses. A study published in 1997 by DuRant et al76,82 described an analysis of

 518 music videos on

4 television networks

(MTV, VH1, CMT, and BET)...
 

The analyses showed
that black individuals were overrepresented as aggressors (25%) and as victims (41%), compared with the percentage of black individuals in the general population (12%). Studies performed by Smith and Boyson in 200293 and

Gruber et al in 200591

validated these findings..."

Brainwaves are very much related to mental state.  Once

recorded on the brain, forever stored in the subconscious

mind.  A combination of effective spiritual and clinical treatment is an absolute must to override the encoded criminal messages.  Funding is needed for brain research, effective spiritual and clinical treatment.
